of marriage equality, support that now includes hillary clinton. but according to john boehner, he will never support marriage equality. but john boehner has a startling new point of agreement with president obama. and in the "rewrite," how the story of sarah palin is the story of the failure of our political media coming up.

speaker an rising star, senator ted cruz. taking on party elder, john mccain. >> we did have a certain eminence greze of the republican party describe rand paul and me as wackobirds. if standing for liberty and standing for the constitution makes you a wackabird, count me a proud wackabird. >> everyone's favorite, rand paul, did win cpac straw poll, by the way. when it wasn't those two wackobirds, it was an angry bird, ann coulter, going after chris christie. >> cpac had to cut back on its speakers this year by about 300 pounds. >> stay classy, mrs. coulter. remember, republicans are working hard to win over women voters. after all, they gave the longest speaking segment of all at cpac to freedom-loving, soda-drinker, sarah palin, who lobbed a verbal spit ball right at bush's brain, karl rove. >> these experts who keep losing elections, keep getting rehired, raking in millions, buck up or stay in the truck. buck up and run. the architects can head on back to -- they can head on back to the great lone star state and put their name on some ballot. >> rove responded that he didn't think i

[ cheers ] i don't think we need to name any names, do we? >> reporter: now, these divisions have become personal lately in the gop, and i think a way, wolf, we don't normally see. but they're substantive divisions as well. how to tackle the issues like immigration reform, things like same-sex marriage. something that's becoming increasingly popular. and, also, how to tackle women's issues in a way that doesn't repel women, as mitt romney did in november. >> lots of work ahead. thanks very much, brianna for that report. the report, by the way, repaired by the republican national committee, is remarkably blunt in discussing the party's problems. the rnc chairman is blunt, as well. reince priebus is joining us now live from party headquarters. reince, thanks very much for coming in. >> hey, wolf. thanks for having me. i told you i
were not particularly political. >> when did you start as a member of the john mclaughlin saturday group? >> well that started in 1984. i had been chosen as one of the three panelists in the first reagan debate. if you remember, back then, they had tried, debates were different then. in those days, the campaigns could veto anybody they did not like. they would veto all kinds of people. >> hold on, before you tell us, we got some video of you at that '84 debate, the reagan and mondale debate. let's just watch that so you can tell the rest of us. the candidates were given a list of almost qualified journalists from all the media. as moderator and on behalf of my fellow journalists, i very much regret, as does the league of women voters, that this situation has occurred. and now let us begin the debate. >> mr. mondale, you complained just now about jerry farwell and you complained about other fundamentalists in politics. correct me if i am wrong, i don't recall you ever complaining about ministers who were involved in the civil rights movement or the anti- vietnam war demonstrations o
's house speaker john boehner. >> i believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman. it's what i grew up with, it's what i believe. it's what my church teaches me. and i can't imagine that position would ever change. >> you know the church taught segregation before integration. churches do change. >> hillary clinton showed her support in this video. >> like so many others, my personal views have been shaped over time by people i have known and loved, by my experience representing our nation on the world's stage. my devotion to human rights, and the guiding principles of my faith. >> finally, public support for gay marriage is at an all-time high. 58% support marriage equality. only 36% opposed. let's bring in the national spo spokes person. it's a human rights issue as well. so it's not just personal. it's principle. so the accolades for senatorportman's announcement need to be put that a context, don't they? >> they do, but senator portman and mrs. clinton are two examples of people who are examples of what we've always nope at glad, which is when people know us, when they kno
polarization around this. >> and also a seminnother impor moment. john berman turned another year older. zoraida has the cakes. >> i took my mike off and i need to use yours. let me tell you, we got you this cake and i went to the back and had you two additional cakes. you are a very popular man. happy birthday. no candles. but you can pretend and make a wish. >> the different cakes, because the staff can't agree on what they like. >> velvet, oreo, and chocolate fudge. >> we have to pause so i can eat this. now to newsroom with carol cosstello, pretty please. >> happy birthday! >> thank you. >>> happening now in the newsroom, breaking overnight. rockets fired just miles from president obama in israel. >>> also, shut down in chicago. >> i think it's a bit ridiculous. >> if you take them out of where they live, what does that say to the child? >> an unprecedented move to close 50 elementary schools. critics say it targets minorities and the poor. >>> plus dow watch. records being shattered every day. should you give your 401(k) a fresh look? >>> plus, late night shakeup. >> before we get

come in the break there. one from yoko ono. over 150,000 people have been killed in america since john lennon was killed in 1980. >> over a million. >> since john lennon, her husband, was killed. >> wow. >> shocking. >> suze orman said i agree. this is a shameful day. this will go away if people let it. >> right. >> the more people who get animated and exercised and bloody angry the more chance there is that people like harry reid will not be able to park this away. there will be more outrages this year. >> right. so, we are getting bounced back on the e-mail i gave. go to senator majority leader ory -- harry reid's website. there is a form. or tweet him on twitter. >> tweet him tonight. >> @senator reid. >> ask what he's doing. if you don't agree this is a guy you need e to talk to. he's the one calling the shots. >> knowing full well that a vast majority of americans want the assault weapons ban. he know this is. >> and background checks. >> what kind of balls does it take to stand in front of a microphone knowing 55, 65% and higher percentages on other parts of the bill want this. v
that sees ted cruz take on john mccain. >> we had an eminent member of the republican party describe me as whacko bird. if standing for the constitution makes me a whacko bird, then count me a proud whacko bird. >> the kind of intraparty donnybrook featuring ann coulter versus ann coulter. here is what she said two years ago. >> if you don't run chris christie, romney will be the nominee. and lose. >> and here is ann coulter this weekend, landing one squarely on the jaw of the very same guy she once wanted to elect president. >> even cpac had to cut back on his speakers this year by about 300 pounds. i'm now a single-issue voter against amnesty. so christie's off my list. >> the next national election is still 596 days away. but there's no rest for republican party still duking it out. how long before a victor is declared? republican strategist mike murphy is not optimistic. predicting we will be stuck in an age of chaos and factional warlords for a while. the battle royale will be the 2015 presidential primary season. robert, you could hear dog wiss in the background during some of tho
in that direction. >> let's talk of gun control. you met with senator john mccain rece recently, and he after the meeting said you seemed to be focused more on pushing a nationwide background check system and not be so focused on the -- a ban on certain kinds of semiautomatic rifles. is that true? is that where you're going to focus your attention and your efforts? >> well, i don't know, just going to get me another nanny-gate, another -- me dressed as mary poppins? i was asked this morning about that, and i said i sort of take that as -- with a measure of pride. i mean, don't we have a responsibility to try to do what's right for each other, and we're certainly doing that in new york city. but let me take a look at guns for you. this year in america, 12,000 people will be killed with handguns, 400 people will be killed with assault weapons or high-capacity magazines. so it is the vast bulk of the murders done with handguns. the numbers you were saying, sir, i thought you were going in a different direction. i thought you were suggesting that a ban on assault weapons, semiautomatic rifles and
of the car and they go, i'm sorry. a mistake. >> i heard today a former british deputy prime minister john prescott who is tony blair's deputy and britain had the same thing. we were told saddam had weapons of mass destruction. that is why we're taking british troops to war. it was a completely false pretext, and i heard him today saying, well, i changed my mind now. it was a mistakech we shouldn't have done it. it's a bit late, isn't it? late in the day. tony blair is standing by what he did. george bush stands by what he did, but to say simply, well, we got it wrong. if you get a war wrong, what are the repercussions? >> unless there are repercussions, unless we do take blair and bush and cheney and these guys to task right now still. if this doesn't happen, what's the message that future presidents and prime ministers, they are like, wow, those guys got away with that. that was a bunch of malarkey. how did they ever get away with that? i think that -- >> you know, you look at iraq now. you see the kurds in the north basically have their own seceded country, their own passports and compl
♪ >> not to be confused with our pushing tony's button. >> for the record the whole was invented by john mccain. >> hal: that's true. >> and second if we want to know how liberals have trouble connecting with heardland america, it's because we talk about riding bicycles to nowhere, which is basically what spinning class is. >> hal: right. i totally agree with you. get out there and get the air in your lungs. >> you don't think a girl who just locked her keys in a trunk would get hit by a car? it's much safer for me to be in a room than on the street. >> hal: i'm not going to argue that point with you. karl frisch you are a media strategy, a democratic strategy you have messaged different products across the great divide -- see how i'm reaching really far for this -- of politic in this country in making it accessible and then you look at the autopsy report coming from the republican party and go um excuse me? >> wasn't it fun? talk about a good read. [ laughter ] >> and i mean that in the drag queeniest sense of the word. >> are you going to do the audio book, karl? >> i would like to.
success. just ask john kerry. what was the problem for the debates? the number of them or the participants? one more takeaway from the report, if you can't beat them, join them. the report says this. quote, well-funded conservative groups should seek to hire activists to attract democratic incumbents and cameras with -- after learning the hard way what video cameras did to todd aiken, george allen, even many murdoch. republicans want to return the favor, clearly. while republicans try to rehabilitate the party's image they have a more fundamental problem to solve. all the process fixes in the world can't deal with the basic question. who are they? as the gop tries to solve this mini identity crisis, feuds are breaking out all over as people try to move around and box each other out to decide who gets to play this game. those divisions were on full display at this weekend's cpac convention as republicans argued about whether the gop needs to expand i wants appeal or reject moderation and return to conservative principles. and debated what exactly those core principles are. former alaska gov

[applause] i'm president of citizens united. it has been a big year, as we celebrate our 25th anniversary. it is great to be back here as we come together for our 40th time. citizens united is doing it again this year, where we get a chance to show off some of the groundbreaking conservative films available today. conservatives need to think of new and innovative ways to develop
members of his party including house speaker john boehner who is ruling out the prospect of any new taxes. >> i think, by the way, there is a chance on a deal. i know the president is saying the right things and we have an opportunity over the next four to five months. i think republicans, if they saw true entitlement reform would be glad to look at tax reform that generates additional rveevenues. that means closing loopholes and arranging our tax system so that we have economic growth. >> i don't know whether we can come to a big agreement. if we do, it will be between the two parties on capitol hill. the president got his tax hikes on january the 1st. the talk about raising revenue is over. it's time to deal with the spending problem. >> of course, the speaker is going to say that, but speaker has to say, as he is the leader of the republican house. this weekend confirmed what i said last week. a lot of people are saying no deal is in the works. they are moving closer together. the key point out of the john boehner interview was he was asked whether he could trust the president and his
woman. so i guess john boehner is now opposed to divorce. according to the "washington post" polling and historic high of 58% of americans believe same-sex marriage should be legal, but only 34% of republicans believe same-sex marriage should be legal. today politico published an informal survey of republicans when asked if his views had changed on same-sex marriage, retiring republican senator saxby chambliss said, "i'm not gay." which many of us had actually suspected already. senator lindsey graham resisted the saxby chambliss urge to reveal his sexual preference and instead said "i'm with south carolina. i believe in traditional marriage between a man and a woman." the divorce rate, of course, in south carolina is zero. senator rand paul violated his libertarian principles in saying, "i believe in traditional, historic and the religious nature of marriage. marriage should remain a state issue." chris christie said something incomprehensible to the "new jersey star ledger." asked about ohio senator rod portman's decision this week to support same-sex marriage after his son reveale
the senate would then have to go over to the house and we're not sure what john boehner would do at this point in time. yesterday he indicated that he doesn't want to expend any new laws. that could trip up all of the reform. >> let me ask you, cynthia, about the politicians and passions about this. they were very hot, 90% for a better set of background checks. in fact, everything comes out with a majority. will it be brought to bear as the senate votes after easter? >> chris, i certainly hope so. i'm so glad that you are advising people to get in contact with their members of congress and members of senate. let me also say that i am so disappointed that harry reid didn't do more to at least keep the ban on high capacity magazines in the main bill. i wanted to see a ban on assault weapons as well but the ban on high-capacity magazines is so critical because those magazines have been used in virtually every major mass shooting that we've seen over the last decade. and they matter. they give the capacity to fire round after round after round without reloading. they give the capacit

surgeon to separate conjoined twins. he is a johns hopkins hospital neurosurgeon, very successful in his field, and he is going to retire in the next few months. that was already set to happen, and he is a conservative, and so he challenged the president at the prayer breakfast, and he has been very, very good at dishing out the red meat, and the crowd at cpac loved him. he was a very vibrant in his speech to the president, which a lot of the politicians have not really been doing that much now that the election is over, and so, he got a better reception than maybe anybody else, just in terms of an exciting everyone, and so it was notable that in the straw poll he did as well as he did. host: also, sarah palin, the previous nominee, a headline this morning, sarah palin brings down the house at the conference, and she is pictured in newspapers around the country gulp.he big what was that the >> it was a great prop. they were criticizing michael bloomberg, going after the many mentality, as she sees it, and she has had a much lower profile since the election. she is not on television. she

wingers versus the establishment. hardball strategists. mike feldman is a democrat. john feehery is a republican. who should they bet on as the face of the party who should win. you' do you want palin or karl rove out organizing and vetting? >> i'd rather have neither out there. i think karl rove knows how to win elections. he won two with george bush. palin was a successf fuful -- i alaska. she was -- you know, she had a -- >> you're so cold about this. i have never seen -- i mean, i don't agree with anything she says. but that is a political genuine article. she puts a better show -- that's why she died on fox. that booth she was up in wasilla didn't work on the stage. moving around. obviously a very attractive person. moving around on that stage. look how she dominates that stage. what is that if it isn't p politics? >> she's a great show person. very good speech maker. she wasn't a particularly good governor. she quit mid-term. i think that killed her. she really can't articulate in any convincing way a governing philosophy that works in the future. >> let me ask you, michael
're willing to compromise, house speaker john boehner doesn't seem ready for a grand bargain. adam shift joins me in about five minutes to talk about that. >>> the island of cypress is making international waves. jackie is here. jackie, small island but big waves here? >> that's absolutely right. hi, richard. for one, europe had fallen off the radar for a long time and that's why this is getting so many attention. a lot of the reason that the dow had made this record run is because investors were hoping that europe's debt crisis was resolved. with respect to cyprus specifically, e.u. has proposed a deal as part of the country's bailout. this marks the first time a european country is calling on its depositors to keep it afloat. it's also sparking concerns about a run on the banks in europe. because if depositors in other countries start to panic about a possible tax, they try to withdraw their funds you could see big problems for european banks. >> maybe this might help in a small way. talk about a billion-dollar business and that's college ball. >> that's exactly right. total ad revenue for t
speaker john boehner again rejected revenue instead of only making cuts. >> when you get down to the bottom line, the president believes that we have to have more taxes from the american people. we're not going to get very far. as the president doesn't believe that the rule will be to balance the budget over the next ten years, i'm not sure we're going to get very far. >> reporter: not every republican agrees with the speaker. senator coker said that he and others are open to lifting tax loopholes as part of the deal. >>> president obama will visit israel this week his first presidential trip to the country. police in jerusalem were getting ready for their trip calling it the most important visit since 2009. some 15,000 personnel are being deployed. >>> graffiti in the west bank has already defaced posters of mr. obama but so far the subject matter is light. the protests are over a lack of mobile wireless in the region. >>> gop fundraiser carl rowe fired back at sarah palin that candidates should go back home and run for office. >> i don't think i'm a balding fat guy. if i did
morris i was there for the inauguration of benedict xvi. of course here in new york city when john paul ii same. it has been a long time since we have seen a pope out and about with the people in this day of terrorism and fears. i wonder how concerned vatican security is for this pope. >> i bet they are very concerned. he's the pope, at the same time. that's what he is going to do. he has chosen to be out there with the people. as the father said he came out of saint ann's church outside of the vatican he stood out there like any priest or pastor would do. greeting everyone who left the church thanking them for being there and asking for their blessing. we see that again coming to saint peter's square he choose not to be in a pope mobile shielded by bulletproof glass but in an open jeep. that's his choice. he believes that's what the church needs now. >> the mass of inauguration to begin now. this is fox news channel's coverage of the inauguration of pope francis across america and around the world.

to president obama, which shouldn't surprise anybody, but also according to john boehner and paul ryan and paul krugman and anybody else who reads or cares to read, it is official, we do not have a debt crisis. we have a long-term debt issue, but we know more as the united states has a debt crisis than a family with a mortgage has a debt crisis. if you look at your mortgage compared to how much you make it is insurmountable. if you look at it that way, you would go i'm in hell and i'm never getting out. >> it's true. >> hal: look at the stats, it would just look horrifying and if you are the kind of person who treats this country like you are a renter like our dear friend paul ryan does -- because that's how republicans look at this country, they are renters, and they don't care about the damage they leave behind. >> it's very hard to trust you to run government when you fundamentally want to destroy government. >> hal: yeah, what is your primary qualification as a baby sitter, well i hate kids and i think there should be forced sterilizations. okay. we'll be
spat on a member of the congressional black caucus. congressman john lewis was greeted with racial slurs. they heckled congressman barney frank with anti-gay chants but democrats were undeterred by this tea party furor. they marched on to make history and sign health care into law. minutes after they did so, tea party hero michele bachmann vowed to tear the law down. >> going to get every republican to sign it and anybody else. if we get 218 signatures, nancy pelosi is forced to bring the repeal bill to the floor for a vote. >> so that was then. the this was today, three years later. >> that's why we're here. because we're saying, let's repeal this failure before it literally kills women, kills children, kills senior citizens. let's not do that. let's love people. let's care about people. let's repeal it now while we can. >> let's repeal it. led by tea party gop has tried 36 times to take an ax to health care, today included. but guess what, the law is here to stay and the tea party, well, these days its bark is a lot worse than its bite. it turns out the caucus hasn't met since ju
as well. could this be obama helping to set up secretary of state john kerry for what you talk about is the larger issue of peace negotiations down the line? >> yes, and i believe secretary kerry is very committed to a middle east peace process. i think it's long overdue. and i think the president's got to give him the political cover that secretary kerry would need. and key is going to be the israeli public. and the relationship with president netanyahu. you know you what say candid or business-like in diplomacy, it means that it's not a perfect relationship. but, you know, a lot of leaders, they develop this relationship. a better relationship, over time, and i think that's what the president is doing. >> so as long as the business relationship can produce positive business results it's a good thing. let's talk about iran. the nuclear issue that's a top issue for president obama's agenda. on friday, defense secretary chuck hagel said there are these plans to beef up missiles after north korea said it was going to be trying to have its preemptive nuclear strike against the u.s. or l
and other gay people. but this is an issue where the republican party is going to drag its heels. john boehner feels like it's a good idea to come out and say, i wouldn't support gay marriage even if i had a gay son which is so unbelievable. >> let's get a response to that. i think that's interesting. is it becoming partisan? meaning that you expect the republicans will not change their platform between now and then, next time, for president? >> no. i actually am optimistic they will, chris. in fact, the postmortem that came out today from the republican party mentioned four times that they have got to start including gay people in the party platform. >> wait a minute. what are the words? the words matter. what do you mean, including them in the platform? >> they said that they're -- oh, that's right, no, the platform actually is terrible, as it relates to lgbt people, but the report that came out today used the position that they have against lgbt people as one of the reasons why they did so poorly this past election. >> therefore? >> it has to be followed up with actual action. >> i
heard from john boehner. >> yeah, well, i -- it's more you hear the moor you can't believe. congresswoman jan schakowsky, dana milbank, thank you both for your time this evening. >> thank you. >>> still ahead, president obama makes a big statement about his second term priorities and surprise surprise, the right wing is going nuts over it. >>> plus look out, karl rove. here comes sarah palin. she's throwing red meat to the far right, and taking aim at the architect. >> if these experts who keep losing elections, you keep getting rehired, raking in millions, the architects can head on back to -- they can head on back to the great lone star state. >>> also, the devil photo that everybody's talking about. does he look familiar to you? >>> and my live interview with the raging cajun. james carville, big show tonight. stay with us. oh this is lame, investors could lose tens of thousands of dollars on their 401(k) to hidden fees. is that what you're looking for, like a hidden fee in your giant mom bag? maybe i have them... oh that's right i don't because i rolled my account over
that john boehner and others can't uphold this that the debt crisis is coming now or soon. if you go through what he said further, he said it is looming and coming. this is always the thing, with this spring of deficit hawk, there's always in some future the great crisis we need to fear. those that have said have been wrong, two years ago was supposed to be then. at least they're backing off it being so soon. that's eroding the underlying nature of the argument. >> does this help explain why they're doing nothing, the debt isn't a big deal? >> they a sequester, what more do they need. >> ezra klein gets the last word. >>> good evening, i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. the scariest aspect of the american invasion of iraq ten years ago today was the ease with which it was sold to the american people. my generation grew up believing aggression was evil. in our schoolbooks and in the war games we played as kids, the aggressor was the bad guy. call this if you will a too basic way to look at war. it is, however, the way we were taught. hitler invaded poland, japan
